Worship Bass Guitar Song Learner Collection

The Song Learner Series is designed for any bass player who wants to learn great parts to well known worship songs and improve their range of styles and techniques.

The Song Learner Series turns a worship song into a 20 minute bass lesson. Every lesson will help you unlock great bass parts used in the original recordings, and give you hints, tips and techniques which you can instantly apply to many other songs.

Tutor Matt Weeks guides you through the song in a step by step manner and is joined at the end of the lesson by guitarist Andy Chamberlain so you can put all your worship bass instruction together in a play through of the song.

The first five lessons are straight forward and should be accessible to relatively new players. The next lessons then get progressively more challenging.

I took lessons when I was beginning, and now that I'm playing in my church praise band, these lessons are helping me grow to the next level. The mix of lessons, interviews and tips helps develop technique and skill, as well as the mental approaches to playing. I suggest working through the entire series several times, taking notes and applying what you learn to playing your favorite songs. This will keep you motivated and you'll hear progress each time you visit the series. Then go back and tackle the most challenging lessons until you master them. In the end, it still comes down to practice. If you can, record yourself so you can hear the difference. Enjoy these lessons!

I highly recommend this course. You can go at your own pace and go back and practice things over and over if you want, or skip parts you don't want to see again. I think it's much more useful than a seminar that flies by too fast.

Very informative and easy to use at my own pace and at my own time. I learn something new everytime I view them. Honestly, for the money, they are a wealth of musical instruction.

These are fantastic lessons. They don't just teach you how to play a few songs, they teach you principles and techniques that can transfer over to many, many songs.
